How much did it cost for CBS to remake "The Early Show" into "CBS This Morning"? According to The New York Times, the price tag was about $40 million.

The company took a restructuring charge of about $46 million, mostly related to the show’s overhaul, which included shedding the show’s longtime “Early Show” title, the story notes.

The network laid off almost two dozen staff members and moved from a Fifth Avenue studio to a new studio at the CBS News headquarters, the story says. CBS said it expects to recoup the costs in 12 to 18 months, according to the piece.


  1. I’ve switched from GMA to This Morning – love Charlie Rose and real news as opposed to the Access Hollywood show over on GMA. Bonus – no screeching Nancy Grace!

  2. I can’t believe it, but this CBS morning show is actual quality! It’s a vast improvement over the garbage that show has been for I-don’t-know-how-long. Good job, CBS News.
